The View from Kite Hill

Hearts of Chaos opens on Kite Hill at Gas Works Park, right after the battle against Kingu that took place at the end of Hearts of Shadow. We stopped by Gas Works on our tour of Deadglass Seattle on Tuesday, and I took a pretty expansive panorama of the view from Kite Hill so you can see what Lucia sees when she looks out over Lake Union. You might want to click on it to see it larger.

The mythology behind Hearts of Chaos, and Tea

12937726604_52c217c08dHearts of Chaos is out this week, and I’m talking about the mythology that inspired the series over at Anna’s Book Blog. Please join me! I’m also talking about the Kivati tearoom over at Sherida Stewart’s blog, and she shares a recipe for Cinnamon and Sunflower Seed Cookies that look delicious. Do you drink tea or coffee? I’m a big tea drinker living in a coffee town, but we are getting more and more boutique tea opportunities here too. I’m a big fan of the Queen Mary Tearoom, where Sherida and I have taken a delightful afternoon tea many times.… Read more »

Excerpt from HEARTS OF CHAOS (Deadglass #3)
To the land of no return, the land of darkness,
The place where dust is their nourishment, clay their food.
They have no light, in darkness they dwell.
Clothed like birds, with wings as garments.

Hot Beach Reads: Hearts of Shadow

It was a sweltering 87 degrees here in Seattle yesterday. We tied with Phoenix for the hottest city. Very few of us have air conditioning, since it rarely gets that hot, but we have abundant cool forests and a few sparkling beaches from which we can dip our toes into the frigid Puget Sound. It’s the perfect weather for a cool drink and a hot book, and–lucky you!–today HEARTS OF SHADOW (Deadglass #2) releases into the wild.
INTERVIEW! With me! At the Book Tart! Today! Book giveaway!
